Quite the Correction: NYT Retracts Massive Error on Number of Children Hospitalized by COVID
Landon Mion / Townhall Tipsheet

The New York Times made a massive correction to an article by Apoorva Mandavilli that initially claimed that nearly 900,000 children had been hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began in the spring of 2020, a far cry from the true number of about 63,000 children hospitalized since August 2020, as The Times stated in their correction.

The Times' original article exaggerated the number of children hospitalized with the coronavirus by 837,000 cases.

Also included in the report were inaccurate descriptions of actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark, as well as an error regarding the timing of a critical Food and Drug Administration meeting. "An earlier version of this article incorrectly described actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark. They have halted use of the Moderna vaccine in children; they have not begun offering single doses," the correction from Thursday read. Read more and see tweet here.

Late Friday evening Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced contracts to construct border wall barriers in the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo Sectors, where the illegal immigration crisis is raging, will be canceled. 

"Consistent with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) border barrier plan, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), intends to cancel the remaining border barrier contracts located within U.S. Border Patrol’s (USBP) Laredo Sector and all border barrier contracts located in the Rio Grande Valley Sector," DHS released in a statement. "CBP will then begin environmental planning and actions consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for previously planned border barrier system projects located within the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, and El Centro Sectors."
